Well done good and faith servant
Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
-- Mat. 25, 23

 

Evert B. Cisco was enlisted 15 May 1861 at Vicksburg by Capt. D. N. Moody. He signed up "for the war." On the June 1861 Muster-In Roll, his age is given as 19.

His compiled service record for this regiment is at
https://www.fold3.com/image/271/77911239
and is in the name of Edward B. Cisco or E. B. Cisco.

On 23 Sep 1862 he was transferred to Capt. Moody's Company, (Madison Light Artillery), Louisiana Artillery. His compiled record there is at
https://www.fold3.com/image/65041427 and is in the name of Everett (various spellings) B. Cisco or E. B. Cisco.

He enrolled 15 May 1861 in Vicksburg with Capt. D. N. Moody for the length of the war.

 

 

 

Here, someone has written his name as Edward Cisco. He was born in Canada, was a saddler by occupation, resided in Vicksburg, was 22 and single when he enlisted, and he was "Transferred to Moody's Battery by Exchange Sept 1862."
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At right, it is noted that Everet B. Cisco was "Transferred from Company A 21st Regt Miss Vol 23 Sept 1862."

 

 

Everett B. Cisco's name appears on a roll of prisoners of war surrendered by Lee to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, 9 Apr 1865.

The name of E. B. Cisco appears on an undated roll of paroled prisoners of war residing in Southern States. Perhaps the "La" is given as residence because Cisco then was serving or served in Louisiana Artillery?

On his Oath of Amnesty, signed 9 May 1865, Pvt. Everett B. Cisco, Moody's Co. Arty Hurt's Bat, gives his residence as Vicksburg. His complexion is light, his hair brown, eyes blue. He is 5 ft 5 in. tall.

Remarks state: "Paroled prisoner voluntarily surrendered his parole. Oath administered in accordance with letter of Lieut. Genl. Grant dated May 8/65."

 

On16 April 1864 at Richmond, E B. Cisco received from the Quarter Master $101, the full amount of Pvt. Cisco's account for "clothing for the year ending Nov. 1st, 1863." Note the signature of E. B. Cisco.

 

On the same day, Pvt. Cisco received his pay for four months, 1 Nov 1863 to 29 Feb 1864 at twelve dollars a month.

 

Wife Emma B. Cisco applied 24 Aug 1921 for widow's pension on her husband's service in the 21st Miss. (Wiltshire's Mississippi Confederate Pension Applications, pg. 162)

She gives her age as 76 and says she has always lived in Mississippi, that she and Evert Cisco married in 1869. Her husband served under Capt Moody ("now deceased") and was honorably discharged in Virginia at the close of the war. She now has no property, lives alone, and has only distant relations.

Evert B. Cisco's middle name on his wife's application above appears to be Banks (?).

The back of this form carried signatures approving the pension for Mrs. Cisco.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wife Emma M. Cisco was born Oct 16, 1845 and is interred beside her husband.
